Gina Ling
  • Administrator - Lewes

Gina Ling

I have been at Beach Babies for the last 16 years and have enjoyed my time during those years as a Teacher, Curriculum Coordinator, and Administrator. I will always be a teacher in one capacity or another and feel that you can never be finished learning new things. I have been the Administrator since January 2006 and consider Beach Babies my second home.

I live in Lewes, Delaware with my husband and children. I have a fantastic son, daughter- in- law and Grandchild in the area and also have two beautiful daughters still in school. We enjoy family time on Sundays with the whole family getting together. My first grandchild attends Beach Babies in Rehoboth and we love having her in such a great program.

I have an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and many hours of continued trainings related to the field. It is an ongoing progress towards furthering my knowledge and experience to help the Teachers reach their greatest potential in offering the best quality program for your child/children.

  • Assistant to the Administrator - Lewes

Holly Griest

Hello! My name is Holly Griest and I am the Assistant to the Administrator at the Beach Buddies Before and After School Program in Lewes. I’ve been a member of the Beach Babies family for three years now and I’ve had the privilege of working with three of the four centers in a few of the many positions offered. I have 11 years’ experience in various areas of Early Childhood Education but my favorite part is working with teachers to support their classroom and teaching needs. I also enjoy developing ways to involve the families of our community as well as collaborating with others to improve the field of Early Childhood Education.

In March of 2019 I will graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree in E.C.E. Educational Studies and in addition, obtain the Child Advocacy certificate from Wilmington University. I plan to continue my education for a master’s degree while actively pursuing more experience in the profession. I hope to one day be an Early Childhood Education Instructor for a local college and partake in the reconstruction of our field of work throughout the Cape Henlopen District.

I’m a mother of four amazing children and with my husband James, we live in the town of Milton. I’m a Sussex county native and was raised to love the sea as well as country life. I’m proud to say my little family enjoys the same! Most of all, we love and enjoy being together.

  • Front Desk Admin. Assistant - Lewes

Nancy

In 2006 I retired from my career of 39 years with the same organization in Lancaster, Pa. I moved to the Rehoboth area and spent 14 months settling into my new home and making new friends. After deciding that retiring full time wasn't for me, I looked for a part-time position and was hired by Beach Babies in 2007. I enjoy the interaction with the children, parents and staff. I work at the front desk and do a variety of tasks, including answering the phone, taking payments, filing, enrolling new children, reports and whatever else Is required.

In my spare time, I travel to visit my 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren in Lancaster and Syracuse, NY. Several times a year I vacation with friends I met in school many years ago. I love to travel and have been to many states and Cyprus when my son was in the Marines.

I hope to continue working at Beach Babies for many more years.
